Video & Transcript of Adam Savage’s Moving Talk and Q&A from @MakerFaire Bay Area @donttrythis @testedcom

Adam Savage gave another enlightening talk at the recent Maker Faire Bay Area – and this one may be his best yet. After 17 minutes of talking from prepared notes, he continued to conduct a Q&A with the audience for an astounding 47 more minutes, taking 31 questions in all, discussing topics from myths to memories to maker stories. Make:’s Gareth Branwyn summed up the talk acutely for me with this paragraph:

He also made a point of reminding the very large, attentive crowd that making is not just about 3D printing, Arduino, LEDs, CNC, and laser cutting. And it’s not just about woodshop or metalwork. And it’s not drones. Making is cooking, dance, making art and music, cosplay. Any act of creating something, bringing something into the world, is making. He also talked, as he has in previous Sunday morning “sermons,” about the importance of making as a way of telling our story, of expressing ourselves, our ideas, and our dreams. Story telling is fundamental to the human experience, he said, and making things is a way of making those stories physical, bringing them to life.

You can watch the full talk and Q&A below, or if you prefer to read the Q&A only Tested have a complete transcript on their website.


 
“…stay making, stay curious.”

Indeed.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
